The 10th Edition of Contemporary Istanbul Concludes With a Record Number of Visitors
Contemporary Istanbul Launches the 10th Edition
CI Focus: Contemporary Tehran
Plugin Istanbul 2015
Dedicated to showcasing artworks within the interaction of science, technology, politics and art, Plugin New Media Section of Contemporary Istanbul is now in its 3rd year, running between November 12th and November 15th, 2015 at the Istanbul Convention and Exhibition Centre (ICEC) under a curatorial theme: X-CHANGE.
This year, the main structure and curatorial process of Plugin New Media Section is updated by considering the technical function of "plugin” as a fundamental layer. In digital cultures, plugin is basically described as a module, which interacts with one another to support and update a file format or a device by supplementing it with a specific function.
By making a supplement to the existing format of a contemporary art fair, this year galleries, independent artists, architecture and design studios, maker spaces, game labs, digital art collectives and project spaces propose multiple ways of X-CHANGE in Plugin.
The Biennial exhibition in Istanbul Modern is extended until 26 November
The biennial, drafted by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev with a number of alliances, presents over 1,500 artworks by over 80 participants. Encompassing 36 venues on the European and Asian sides of the Bosphorus, SALTWATER takes place in museums as well as temporary spaces of habitation on land and on sea such as boats, hotels, former banks, garages, gardens, schools, shops and private homes until 1 November.
Due to great interest, the exhibition in Istanbul Modern, one of the 14th Istanbul Biennial venues, is extended until 26 November 2015.
